A Letter To My Daughter
Blogger Party

You + Me & a Big Comfy Couch

The morning sun peers through the window and its light softly illuminates the room. As shadows of the trees dance elegantly across the hardwoods floors, everything falls still except the light flickering wildly from the candle on my table.

I gently wrap my hands around my coffee mug and hold it ever so close to my nose so I can breathe in its sweet vanilla aroma.

And there we are, you and I sitting cross legged on my comfy couch..

..and just like that light that slowly burns from the candle on my coffee table, I hope my story can bring light in your life. That every word shines through the tiny cracks of the heart thats been hardened by the world.

As your fingers slowly turn each crinkled page of my story, I pray you see a little of yourself intertwined in the delicate details. Through my seasons of singleness, heartache, hardship, doubt, marriage, joy, happiness, waiting and motherhood, I hope your soul resonates with mine in some way & realize that through it all, our hearts beat the same.

Most of all, with every chapter, I hope you see a reflection of the big picture that is redemption & love.. a reflection of Jesus & His grace.

…and there, scribbled in the margins, you will find my heart- the raw & the vulnerable parts of my journey.. the good & the bad..all the pieces that makes this life a beautiful one.

May my words inspire you and encourage you to live with purpose, chase without hesitation the desires of your heart, laugh a little, even cry a little, soak up every single moment… and above all, live the beautiful (belle) life God has given you.

Here’s Why You Should Stop Making Excuses

And Go After Your God-Driven Purpose

You Think You’re Not Good Enough

The comparison game, we have all been there. We look at that other beautiful girl's Instagram feed, blog or "success" and think less of ourselves. Let me remind you that GOD MADE YOU UNIQUE. You WILL NEVER be that other girl, because you weren't made or called to be her. You were called to be YOU. The wonderful daughter of the King!

He reminds us in Galatians 6:4 " Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else."

You see by comparing yourself to someone else, you are DOUBTING our God. Don't doubt God. He WILL sustain you if you follow his calling!

You Don’t Have The Resources

Let me ask you a question.. Do you really think God will call you to do something and not give you the resources to make it happen? He promises in  Luke 12:31 "Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need." & in Philippians 4:19 it says "And my God will fully supply your every need according to his glorious riches in the Messiah Jesus."

Sometimes this God-sized dream or calling may feel impossible but I promise you it is not. God WILL provide what you need, when you need it!

You’re Afraid You Will Fail

Let me assure you, when you are doing kingdom work, nothing is a failure! God also gives us CLEAR instruction to not fear. It is actually written 356 times in the Bible to NOT FEAR. One of my favorite versus says this  “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isiah 41:10. 

Right there God promises us he is with us and that he will strengthen and help you all. That is a pretty big promise so why fear he won't make it happen?

He commands us in Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”  SO what are you waiting for? Be strong and courageous!

You Don’t Know Where To Start

One of my all time favorite bible verses says this "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6.

 

This instructs us to submit to him and trust him and his understanding not our own! Sometimes God will not lay out clearly our calling, he just calls us to start. If you feel he is calling you to do something, start wherever you are. Pray and ask him for direction. We can stare at a path all day but if we don't start making steps we will never know where it leads to!
